Education Community Service Program
The Education Community Service Program works with schools, literacy programs, learning disabilities projects, and offers leadership training for Club members. For example:
The Education CSP provides docents to the State Capitol and the Raleigh City Museum.
In 1984-1985 the Club adopted the Mount Vernon Re-Directional School. Currently our Club sponsors a monthly party for the children at the Mt. Vernon School.
The Education CSP conducts its activities through the following committees:
- Docents for the State Capitol
- Docents for the Raleigh City Museum
- Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Foundation
- Jennie June Book Club
- Mount Vernon Redirection School
- Scholarship Contests, Local, District and State
- Scholarships for Students and Mature Women
- Wake Education Partnership Foundation
In honor of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and Read Across America, the Education CSP will be collecting Dr. Seuss books for GFWC and our local community. Please consider bringing a Dr. Seuss book to the next General Meeting on March 13. There will be a collection box in the lobby.
HELP NEEDED for Community in Schools (CIS) since funding has been cut. The community tutorial programs
are in need of individually wrapped snacks…ie small bags of pretzels, granola bars, check mix, etc. It should be something as healthy as possible that kids would love to eat after school before tutoring and homework. Large boxes are usually under $10. Please place snacks in the basket next to the table collecting money for symphony tickets. Your generous contribution will be appreciated by many children!
